October UFO's and PomPoms! from The Cozy Quilter



I finally made my September block for the Elgin Piecemakers Guild Comfort quilt project this past week! We were each to make a bird block with a gray background.  We had plans to meet outside in September in someone's backyard but it poured rain the night of our meeting and it got cancelled so now, the bird blocks will be handed in with the October blocks this month.  I had already made all of my blocks for the rest of the year in the spring so this was the last one to make for 2021.  I used a Riley ...

Knitting and Stitching! from The Cozy Quilter

Last week, I showed you the block I made for one of the TMQG members for a round robin of sorts.  That block was supposed to be done and mailed by the end of July, but I was obviously late!  In an attempt to be caught up by the end of August, I made these 4 blocks for D.  She had requested black and white with a pop of colour and some words that reflected the times we are in on her block.  I found some fabric in my stash with French words on it--Bonjour and Merci were the words ...

Sewing, knitting and embroidery from The Cozy Quilter

I have been participating in a round-robin quilt project with a group of 5 other quilters from the Toronto Modern Quilt Guild over the past few months.  We each made a centre block and then everyone else in the group makes a border or another block or two for each member of the group according to the style/colours chosen by the quilter.  This month, my block is for J.  Her block was pieced in an improv style with these colours.  I dug into my scrap bins and made her a block that I hope will compliment what she made ...

Back in the Sewing Room from The Cozy Quilter

My husband and I both had our second vaccines this past week.  Happy Dance!  I'm looking forward to getting out more but am also feeling cautious about it at the same time.  Baby steps...

I managed to get back into my sewing room this week and get some projects moving along.  First up, I made two Blue blocks for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt...one in turquoise and one in navy.  Great way to revisit my scraps and use some of them up. 



I used some orphan blocks to make these 8.5" square little quilts for a charity ...

Placemat Production from The Cozy Quilter

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers, aunts, grandmothers and others who nurture their friends and families!  

I have been working hard this week to finish off my 12 placemats for Meals on Wheels.  I used up some of my batting scraps strips, zigzagged together for this project--the bin is still full...sigh. I fear that all of my scrap bins are bottomless, somewhat like Mary Poppin's duffle bag. The scraps for these three placemats are leftovers from a quilt I made for my aunt a couple of years ago.  The placemats are about 12” by 18”. 


 I ...
